Type ? for help, \q to quit.
Type ?12 for how to get moral (and possibly technical) support.

   realprecision = 28 significant digits
   seriesprecision = 16 significant terms
   format = g0.28

parisize = 4000000, primelimit = 500000
gp> f(n)=f(n-1)
gp> f(0)

I am sorry if this is a FAQ, but in the case of an obvious infinite
loop if I "control C" it, I get silently dumped back to the shell.
I guess this is better than a core dump, but is there any way to get
control again and not lose the sessions? Shalom, Michael
